Building a Better Data Warehouse and BI Environment

Information is a company's best asset and today's leading businesses are harnessing it to make real-time critical business decisions that will impact the company's bottom line, meet regulatory deadlines and address customer needs. But, how can companies be assured that the information is always accurate and up to date with data being integrated from disparate sources and with different standards?

IT organizations are required to tackle these data management issues head on and solve the complex issues around designing the infrastructure, ensuring data quality, understanding the source of data and business rules, managing the metadata and extracting and transforming it to standardized formats for a data warehouse. Yet, solving these issues can take many weeks and months while your business users wait impatiently for this critical information.

Cut Implementation Times and Boost Productivity

Embarcadero helps Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Warehouse (DW) architects better design, document, and reuse data elements to create a more structured and standardized BI environment. Our tools improve data governance, cut implementation times, reduce data management costs and increase productivity.

Embarcadero provides you with a data modeling platform to help you:

  • Cut implementation times and jumpstart DW projects with pre-fabricated industry data model templates
  • Reduce data redundancy with a standardized enterprise data dictionary
  • Improve data governance by visually tracing source and target mappings with detailed documentation while being able to capture data stewardship, security and compliance information
  • Increase enterprise communication and documentation with online metadata query/reporting tool
"Well constructed data models are significant productivity tools that eliminate redundant design efforts, inconsistent data elements, and inaccurate or incompatible business rules. They promote significant increases to overall project (DW/BI) productivity." – Dr. Claudia Imhoff
